Andy's Picture - Manual Exposure - ISO 1600, F-5.6 and 1/8 Shutter Speed
Nikon D3 and 24-70mm Lens
It's been a long-rainy day, for Day 21 of the Picture-A-Day Challenge here in Charleston, SC. However gloomy the day was, it didn't damper my ability to work and produce pictures. My right-hand, Sally Hayes, and I managed to get the Noritsu mini lab on the semi and out of the CCforP Studios!
I finished doing Post Production on a big picture project for a client and am now working on a Final Cut Pro video edit. My intern, Kayla McGuire, and I shot several video segments of CCforP instructor, Kenny McKeithan, for upcoming instructional podcasts. They turned out great and I can't wait to share them with you.
Stacy's Pictures - Aperture Priority - ISO 500, F-3.3 and 1/5000 Shutter Speed
Nikon D3s and 105mm (Macro) Lens
I have a lamp in my living room that has a beautiful swirl pattern in the glass. It's something that a person wouldn't notice unless they were looking for detail photographs. Today I decided to shoot with a macro lens to help change my perspective.
I have many Photoshop tricks up my sleeve. The picture was very monochromatic, so I decided to add my own twist to it. I basically added contrast and painted color back into the picture. I have created many of my own Actions in Photoshop, which manipulate the color tones of a photograph. I simply applied these Actions a little at a time by the use of Layers and the History Brush Tool. I'm hoping to do a short podcast on this technique soon.
